Who is Entitled to File a Wrongful Death Lawsuit in California?
California law determines who can file a wrongful death lawsuit in San Diego. Most commonly, the deceased spouse and children are entitled to file a wrongful death lawsuit when another person or party’s negligence resulted in another person’s death. However, if there are no children or there is no spouse or domestic partner, then other parties may be entitled to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit.
Families who have lost a loved one can pursue a lawsuit on behalf of the deceased. If you have lost a loved one, reach out to the Law Offices of Bruce S. Meth, wrongful death lawyers in Chula Vista, California today. Our firm can review your claim, determine who in your family is entitled to make a claim, and help you pursue a claim to the fullest extent under the law.
I have been helping people who have lost loved ones due to someone else’s negligence since I opened my practice in 1982. When you walk into our office, you will be treated with respect by a friendly office staff that prides itself on making our clients feel as comfortable as possible during this most difficult time of their lives. The emotional toll of losing a loved one is almost impossible to bear, we understand that. Our attorneys will work with you, directly establishing a relationship of trust and mutual respect that will allow us to recover compensation from those who caused the wrongful death. In a wrongful death action the heirs are entitled to recover for the loss of love, compassion, comfort, care, assistance, protection, affection, society, moral support, loss of guidance and training and the loss of enjoyment of sexual relations. Taking action in a wrongful death case allows families to gain emotional closure in addition to financial compensation. We realize that no amount of money will ever bring back your loved one, but we will take the necessary legal action to help put your family on the road to recovery.
